Hello,

Hello, i was the Auslogics Disk Defrag Tool to defrag my Partition, and then i went to check a backup folder, i was trying to change the icon of the folder, i dont know what went wrong

The Folder just disappeared !! while it was still showing at the defrag app its working on that folder.

i tired to open the Folder via Run by typing " G:\H " but it opens to me the Recycle Bin.!
It looks empty, but when i right click and check Properties it shows me the Actual size of the folder,

so The Folder just disappeared, and when using Run to open it, it opens Empty recycle bin instead; with Properties of the file size of missing data.

any idea of how to get my data back ?

i've fixed it, copied the files to another location and it was goin well and i was able to see the files on the new location,
as long as the file transfer was complete it turned to a recycle bin as well :S

so i copied them again to another location and opened the folder quickly, and kept looking for suspicious file the reason for this mess and obviously it was the "Desktop.ini" i deleted it, and everything is now fine.
hope it helps if someone had it later.
